Ghanaian Grammy Award-winner, Fuse ODG has officially unveiled the maiden edition of his annual program titled Tina Festival. The annual festival will kick on January 4, 2019, at the International Trade Fair Centre, Accra with a long list of acts.
A new African sound has captured the attention of the world in recent years – Afrobeat. The sound has gained millions of followers from every corner of the globe. African music is fast becoming a force to be reckoned with in the global music scene. The aim of the annual TINA Festival is to become the home of this sound and music genre. It will be the place where people go to experience the genuine lifestyle that comes with the music.
The festival will be a day party populated with a market fair and activities, and then an evening concert with performances from Fuse ODG Afrobeats pioneer, Sarkodie – one of Africa’s greatest hip-hop artists, Stefflon Don, Joey B, Lethal Bizzle plus more to TBA soon.
INA Festival will be to Afrobeat what Glastonbury is to Rock music. Beyond the music and the lifestyle, the festival will also promote the continent and Ghana in particular; becoming a catalyst for tourism and investment.
Global Afrobeats superstar Fuse ODG helped to create the TINA Festival. One of the leading pioneers of the sound, he has been using his music and influence to promote Ghana and Africa in a way that has never been done before. He is famous not only for his music and helping the rise of Afrobeats world-wide but also for his tireless commitment to re-educate how Africa is perceived in the world.
Fuse’s efforts to spread this message have allowed him to connect with a variety of artists worldwide which have led to him earn the first Grammy Award by a Ghanaian last year. He has invited global superstars such as Ed Sheeran to stay with him in Accra, and gain an experience of Ghana aimed at changing global perceptions. It is in that same vision that has led to the creation of the TINA Festival.
In re-uniting the Global African Diaspora, the Tina Festival will be part of a wider series of events over three days held at Ghana’s most iconic venues.
